New Release: November 20th, 2013


The Nelson Police Department holiday CounterAttack Program officially begins on November 29th.

In addition to impaired driving, the Nelson Police will be targeting other types of high risk driving behavior. This includes aggressive driving, people who are not wearing their seatbelts, speeding or using hand held devices while driving.

Drivers can expect to see an increased officer presence on roadways for the remainder of the holiday season.

  • Don’t drink and Drive. It’s not worth risking it.
  • Prepare your vehicle for emergencies. Don’t get caught on a dark, cold road without a flashlight or warm winter boots.
  • Drive carefully. Ice and Snow can make winter driving treacherous. Drive slowly, don’t hurry and watch for other drivers.
